产品描述

Published in 1954 and spanning from the fall of the Qing Dynasty to the dawn of the People’s Republic of China, Teahouse stands as one of the most critically acclaimed plays in modern Chinese literature. Writer Lao She uses owner Wang Lifa’s teahouse to paint a vivid portrait of life during the first half of the 20th century in the Chinese capital of Beijing. Brought together over the daily ritual of tea and conversation, the characters reflect upon the changes in their own lives, and the changes taking place in Chinese society during that time. Standing as it does between two distinct Chinas (the old and the new), Teahouse reaches well beyond the borders of social criticism and extends into a complex and living masterpiece of modern theatre.

About the Author

Lao She is the penname of She Sheyu (1899-1966), a well know Chinese author and playwright. Originally from an impoverished Beijing family, Lao She went on to teach at the School of Oriental Studies, London University and in the United States. Upon returning to China, he taught at several universities and after the Japanese invasion took active part in the National Writers’ and Artists’ Resistance Association. His most famous story is Camel Xiangzi, sometimes translated as Rickshaw Boy. Today he ranks alongside Lu Xun as one of China’s most acclaimed and respected authors.
